Happy fathers day to all the dads out there!
In one of the most memorable races in Olympic history, Derek Redmond of Great Britain finishes his 400m Semi-Final crying on the shoulder of his father. He tore his hamstring during the race and fell on the ground in pain.
But he was determined to finish his race. He got up and continued running on the tracks while limping. He was badly injured, so his father pushed through the crowds to come and help him. They finished the race together with over 65,000 people clapping on standing ovation.
Derek was last in the race, but first in the hearts of many. That was 1992, and nobody remembers now who won the gold during that race. But Derek Redmond’s name and his father will be remembered forever for this inspiring triumph.
